MS has decided that this is by design and not going to change.
However, it appears to me to only be a problem with the tests that try
to use * as a value for properties (such as svn:needs-lock or
svn:ignore). IE, tweaking the tests that do this to use the -F option
rather than passing * directly on the commandline works fine.

Any objections to doing that?
